INCITE! Palestine Points of Unity

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

“Israel” is committing genocide. It inflicts physical, economic and psychological violence on Palestinians daily…

  • We support Palestinian self-determination and de-colonization of Palestine.
  • We demand the right of return for the 5.5 million Palestinian refugees who have been displaced by “Israeli” invasion.
  • We call for their safe return to their villages of origin and we demand that they be compensated for their losses.
  • We support the movement to “disinvest (or divest) from “Israel.”
  • We join the call for divestment from all corporations that do business with “Israel.” We join the call for boycotting “Israeli” products and divesting from financial ties that support the military industrial complex of “Israel.”
  • The “U.S.” government must STOP $6 billion from US every year to finance “Israeli” colonization.
  • We insist that the voices of Palestinians surviving and resisting occupation be heard.
  • End all forms of violence committed against Palestinian women and families including rapes and still-births at checkpoints, political imprisonment and torture, and housing demolitions.
  • STOP THE GENOCIDE AGAINST PALESTINIAN PEOPLE!
